King Arthur's Halls stained glass - Tintagel

Some of the 72 panels of stained glass in King Arthur's Great Halls in Tintagel. The windows are by Veronica Whall and illustrate the Arthurian tales. The windows are recognised as fine examples of Arts and Crafts workmanship, together with being one of the finest examples of stained glass outside of a church to be found anywhere.

King Arthur's Hall was opened in 1933. It was commissioned by eccentric millionaire Frederick Thomas Glasscock. Glasscock made his fortune from custard powder but became fascinated with the Arthurian legend after visiting the area on holiday.
